A nipple tuck is a breast reshaping procedure that is used to correct nipples that are constantly erect or have drooped as a result of weight loss, pregnancy or breastfeeding. Protruding nipples can sometimes be bothersome due to their visibility through clothing or are physically uncomfortable and produce emotional distress, especially when it only affects one breast. Patients often have to wear heavier clothing or a thicker bra to help camouflage the appearance of permanently erect nipples.
The nipple tuck procedure can be performed under a local anesthetic in our fully accredited Oakville clinic and takes approximately one hour to perform. If the nipple tuck is done in combination with another breast surgery procedure, it would be performed under a general anesthetic. Small incisions are made by the nipple or around the areola depending on the severity of the area to be corrected.
To find out if nipple tuck is right for you, please contact our knowledgeable staff at our Oakville office, between Hamilton and Toronto, Ontario. If you are ready to schedule for consultation, Dr. Julie Khanna is able to provide her patients with all of the information that they will need to make the most informed decision.
